and in connecticut and not just this disaster but going back to 2011 and the catastrophe that connecticut suffered when you personally contacted me and offered assistance. i want the people to know that they have a real friend in the senator of louisiana. your leadership has been tremendous in this area. i want to briefly say thank you to the president for providing the strong leadership that he has in the wake of this disaster in connecticut. he prompely declared connecticut an emergency area and that permitted the s.p.a. to come along along with fema and the people on the ground that have been there for quite some time, many of the fema officials in advance of the storm. unfortunately, many of these recent storms and their scope and depth and the devastation they cause that we may face a new normal in this kind of catastrophic weather-related event. we need to prepare in the longer term as well as the short term that why the suggests made early this morning and other improvements will be made are so critically important. i think you need to know that the connecticut s.p.a. office has approved $6

. this is from the journal news, the newspaper. the massacre in newtown, connecticut remains top of mind for many of our readers. our readers are understandably interested to know about guns in their neighborhood. we possibilitied the names and addresses of residents who are licensed to own hand guns through routine freedom of information law public records request. michael, that makes -- does that implicitly assume that anybody who owns a gun is going to go off on some massacre like what we saw up in connecticut? >> well, yes. this list exposes an inherent bias among the publishers and editors of this newspaper that somehow own ago hand gun is socially unacceptable. using the tactics of the extreme left to try to embarrass or bully or to try to convince these people that whatever they're doing that's inconsistent with the beliefs of the publisher is somehow unacceptable. we certainly want to insure that there is a right of all constitutional rights to be able to possess hand guns, as well as be able to speak about whatever you want to publish whatever you want. in this case, you have to preserve
, connecticut, for all the good this nation has done to lift up children we still have much more work to do. so, mr. speaker, before i get into my remarks about the bill, i first want to extend my heartfelt condolences to the victims and their loved ones struggling as we all are to understand this senseless assault on children and their educators. and while newtown is rightly receiving the nation's attention, what goes unnoticed far too often is the number of children that die each year in this country as a result of abuse and neglect. sadly their deaths often come at the hands of those who should be caring for them the most. state reports indicate that more than 1,500 children in the u.s. died from abuse or neglect in fiscal year 2010. and research shows that these reports may significantly understate the actual number of these fatalities. congress should do what it can to prevent these tragedies which is why this legislation is before us today. this legislation is a result of careful bipartisan work over the past couple of years. in 2010 i requested that the government accountability office,
in history. a gunman walked into the sandy hook elementary school in newtown, connecticut and opened fire. >> he came late in my life but jesse was my best friend and my buddy, too. my little boy said something the night before to me and he said, dad, this is going to be the best christmas ever. and he was going on about it and i said, jesse, you know, it's -- you know, we'll make it the best we can and i don't have much family so it's kind of a quiet time for me and he made christmas happy for me and joyful and he made it what it was and i said to him, jess, we'll make it the best we can. and the next day this tragedy happened that occurred and i thought to myself, boy, was he wrong about that. >> the ar-15, as we've now seen from the last three mass shootings in america, aurora, oregon and now the sandy hook school is the preferred choice of weapon for disturbed young men who want to commit atrocities. the president of the united states has indicated he wants to ban assault weapons like this. what is your view? >> i think we need to ban gun laws that ban people from protecting themselve
recognition? without objection, the gentleman from connecticut is recognized for one minute. mr. courtney: we have the power as members to actually pay this country back from a fiscal cliff which endangers an economic recovery and threatens middle class families across the country. the good news is there right now. consumer confidence is up, car sales are up, even the housing market is making a he recovery. if we do not, however, act, to sign this discharge petition and protect middle class families, we will go backwards as a nation. it will also solve 3/4 of the sequestration challenge that the budget control act is still sitting out there for january 2. if we sign this discharge petition, get this bill passed, 3/4 of the problems will be solved and we'll protect medicare, we'll protect our military, we'll protect education. and it will reduce the size of the challenge to avoid sequestration. all members, republicans and democrats, should come together, sign this discharge petition, and help the american people get this economy back on its feet. i yield back the balance of my time. the speak
, connecticut, many wonder what do they have in common? gun tragedy, the loss of 26 lives, and americans suffering from a devastating storm, certainly our hearts goes out to those babies who were lost. but it really speaks to americans in need, and i guess that's why i'm so troubled to be on the floor today, because the framework that we have says to america that when you're in need we will not as this congress and this government be prepared to help you. i think what is disappointing and i know for the speaker, it is probably the same case as i am speaking because just about three days ago we thought there was a deal between the white house and the framework that was offered and the leadership of this house. it's disappointing that in the course of a couple days we've come to a situation where this plan, plan b, raises only about $300 billion from high-income households and the centers for budget priorities suggest that millionaires will get $108,500 per $1 million, over $1 million in tax cuts, but what will the middle class gets? plan b allows the old pre-bush or bush tax cuts to conti
us on the democratic line from connecticut. caller: good morning. my question is, in watching c- span over the years, i noticed there was once an episode where an economist talked-about a world view on reducing the imprint of the military and using limited black ops and to intervene in situations to quell unrest in the discos along with the things like the economy -- this goes along with things like the economy. my question is how do you see us going black ops and the cia? is this not what we did in afghanistan? guest: i understand there is a very wrong perception among the public that all special ops do are black ops and unilateral raids in the dead of night. that perception is widely held. in the case of columbia, the philippines, yemen, these other places that i am talking about, the governments have invited special operations forces in to help them, to help their country's forces. that is why i think it is such an effective use in the long term. it does not cause the same political diplomatic controversy as many people know what happened after the bin laden rate. it was a huge rup
the wealthy but everyone. what it means, frankly, is whether you live in connecticut like the presiding officer or illinois like myself, every family is going to see several things happen automatically. taxes will go up. the payroll tax cut that has helped this economy is going to disappear. unemployment benefits are going to disappear for millions of americans who are searching for work, and many other changes will take place, none of which will be favorable in terms of an economic recovery. i think that we ought to stop and reflect for a moment here on lessons learned. here's what i have learned. if we're going to solve this problem, we need to do two things. we need to be prepared on both sides of the table to give, and that's a hard thing for many people to acknowledge, but we do. we have to be willing to give on both sides of the table. i remember senator reid receiving a letter after the super committee was hard at work coming up with a bipartisan proposal, signed by virtually every senator on the other side of the aisle, said do not include a penny of revenue. that was the end of
